Adam Henson on first jobs

It takes six months to settle into the world of work after landing your first job, according to research.

A poll of 2,000 workers found starting their first job left many feeling ‘overwhelmed and ‘out of their depth’, meaning it took months for them to feel comfortable in the workplace.

But 44% of those who had some form of industry experience before landing their first full time role said it helped them build confidence.

The research was commissioned to raise awareness of T-levels, a two-year, career-focused qualification for 16- to 19-year-olds, which is equivalent to three A-levels and includes a 45-day industry placement.
